Canada: Windsor Public Library Promotes Drunken Spelling Bee (aka “The Buzzed Bee”)
From the CBC:
There’s already plenty of buzz about an adult spelling bee scheduled at Phog Lounge next week.
Owner Tom Lucier partnered with the Windsor Public Library to host the event that gives adults an opportunity to relive their glory days, only this time with a few drinks from the bar.
The idea came from Lisa Pieczonka, the team leader of community libraries for the Windsor Public Library. She learned about other libraries holding similar events as a way to market new audiences.
